Beautifully restored classic theater with comfortable seats and good acoustics. Saw "Something Rotten" here and it was made even better by the theater itself. I'd love to go again...

We did not go into the theater for any show, but just walking outside was worth it. Seeing all the stars on the ground of the famous people who played there was great. A nice old theater with a lot of history.

I went here because of Elvis. The inside doors were open with staff there but obviously no movies showing at the time of my visit. Lots of history to this theatre like Leow's state as well. Glad they have kept it around.

Great venue for Broadway shows, ballet, and opera. Comfortable seats, especially the roomier Orchestra and Boxes/Suites. Great acoustics and friendly staff. Worth a visit arrive early to explore and get some history from the volunteer ushers.
